Even if South Africa and Mexico draw, I don't understand why either of the team's mentality would be to play for a draw on the first match. You always want to score as many points whenever possible, and the first game is the best game to take the risk on going on the offensive because if you get burnt by the counter you have 2 games to make up for it. France is in shambles, losing to a weak sided China and then barely squeaking by Costa Rica does not bold well. not at all. Ribery is their lone grasp on hope but he can't possibly lead France to victory like Zidane did in '06.
